Sure, it’s “always on,” but. . . . 3/5
By zorg the magnificant
It certainly isn’t live. Everything is in a continuous loop, just recycling through the day today, with the same segments on tomorrow and beyond.
It is “live” with breaking news such as a presidential announcement or daily news briefing.
But now, there has been nothing live on the data dump the Secretary of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve chairman is telling Congress, and the stock market is tanking.
Just more of the same seen more than three times today already.
A major disappointment. But my cable has been out, so it’s better than nothing.
11/28/21 When I scroll down as I am reading a story, suddenly the entire screen goes white. This has happened at least 3 times & would not come back. Then, takes me back to beginning of news feed - and have to go find story again. It’s a big interruption & gap & I never did finish a couple stories. Please fix.
2/4/2021 Tonight there are new ads for games - they have an “x” top right corner that one would think closes the ad. IT IS NOT WORKING!!! So sick of theses screen size ads forced on us. Can’t tell where ads & news begin sometimes! I realize nothing is really free; but, why must you be so obnoxious with these ads, NONE of which I have ever bought into!!! Stop punishing us for having the app! Having both big ads AND banners is OVERKILL!! And this same tactic is used on the local CBS channel!! I rarely go to that app. THE REPETITION OF YOUR STORIES 3 & 4 times continues to be ridiculous. Just have a list with access to the story ONCE! And no videos without the choice to read instead of watch! I prefer to actually READ! Thank you!
FREQUENTLY FREEZES UP 2/5
By Want to be fit !
Love the reporters and the content, but if the frequent freeze ups do not stop I will deleat the app.
Love it!!!! 2/5
Started using in on TV. Now have it on my phone. With my schedule it is awesome to be able to see clips for earlier shows and feel connected when I need to catch up on the news live. Turn in on when I'm cleaning and listen to what's going on with the work.
Update- super frustrated. The advertise all theses CBSN original documentaries but hard to find on site if you can.
Print seems to have gotten smaller. Hard to read!
“Share Story” button needed. 1/5
Put in a “share story” function. Don’t you want viewers to circulate your stories to get more eyeballs on your content?
By On S T
Very unstable app and most of the stories never even load. Even your stories on the web won’t load after the “read more” button. Not impressed and will delete.
Up to the minute info 5/5
By millionaire maind
I love this app the information is exactly what I need and is my go to source period all others pale in comparison
Not worth it 1/5
By Het by
Every time I try to skip forward to where I previously left off the app makes me sit through a cycle of infinite ads and can’t watch anything else. I have tried the website and app multiple times and it is so frustrating.
Return arrow does not work 2/5
CBS News app needs to make a immediate change. The return arrow on the top of the page does not work. I have to click home button to return to the home page and I cannot return to the previous page.
Can’t search 2/5
Not able to find clip from broadcast.
You remove what I read most. Good by too bad. Science first 1/5
It’s a sad day which science is not news
I can’t find live with Gail king 1/5

I can’t find morning with Gail King
Great Reporting 5/5
By Lowest 2
The reporting is top notch. I like he ability to increase text size for easier reading.
Difficult GUI 2/5
By Mae East
Confusing to navigate. No search function. Graphic interface is outdated.
Where is the search function? If there is one it’s not displayed prominently enough. Why no archives?
Worst app. Multiple audio feeds. No way to stop.
Where is the share button? 3/5
The CBS News app is great but there are no share buttons! Want to share your amazing stories with all my friends and the world.
Needs a search field. 1/5
If there is one, it’s too hard to find.
Tony & wages 5/5
Thank you so much Tony for mentioning that Costco’s new wage (or any businesses $17 an hour or less )is not truly a living wage. People really need to hear that $35,000 a year you mentioned doesn’t Buy you a home or security.
I could find no Search device on this app
Used to work better, now just full of ads - useless:( 1/5
The one-liner notifications are the only benefit to this app. Once you click on one to read a story you get a stream of full page ads that completely interrupt the sentences of any story or article, and trying to scroll past them usually triggers a “click” that exits to the external site.
Completely frustrating experience. Bad news, no pun intended, but taken.

Can’t share videos 1/5

I just found this now I’m new!😊 madras
App is now ruined 1/5
I downloaded to watch Sunday Morning and occasionally live news. I have been able to see it - with commercials - I don’t mind - for months. Something happened with an update that made tapping on the show not work and when I tried to watch it, I spent the last 20 minutes seeing multiple batches of commercials and couldn’t even get to the show clips!! Done with it. Live TV has less commercials demands.
Make it easy to share video 2/5
Needs Improvement 1/5
By Freq Travlr
The app lacks a search feature.
They’ve changed(!) 2/5
Loved the morning segment online and they changed the opening and reading online news that’s 20hrs old is not “new” news…what’s happening to my favorite news station? :(
Content is there if you can find it 2/5
Very poor app design. This is supposed to be the CBSN app. On Saturday mornings we stream CBS Saturday Morning via the app because our local station broadcasts too early.
But most of the time when you open the app it defaults to a list of local stations (not our city) and it automatically plays one of the local stations or it forces you to choose one of the local stations. It will NOT autoplay the national broadcast every time. Randomly, inexplicably, on a whim, the app will actually autoplay the national broadcast.
Instead of having easy access to the national streaming of the Saturday morning show, you have to scroll ALL THE WAY DOWN to an odd little grey icon at the very bottom that will get you to the national Saturday morning show.
App designers: absolutely, EVERY TIME the app should autoplay the NATIONAL streaming and NOT some local station. The icon to the national streaming should also be AT THE TOP. If someone wants a local station they should have to click on that station and it should NOT EVER autoplay.
Buggy app 3/5
By Chaitu B
I hate to give this rating to this app since I like the cbs news content a lot but this app is not enough to handle it consistently. Please tune the app to eliminate all bugs and make it smooth to the users.
App not useful 1/5
By Private Ryans
I was using the app and realized it does not have a search option. So if the info I’m looking for isn’t new, I can not find it. Unless it’s in a spot I can’t see, I don’t care for this app
If you need to ask... 1/5
you need a better tech team.
Poor layout and lack of helpfully titled articles 1/5
If I could rate it lower I definitely would.
Too many ads 1/5
I understand CBS needs ads for revenue, but too often the ads in the app will continue indefinitely, requiring the user to restart and reattempt to view the content, and consequently gamble that they will not be caught in an infinite ad glitch, again.
Does not cover news 1/5
The stories not told are the news.
I can't believe it's free!!! 5/5
Amazing up to the minute news coverage convenient on my phone!
By Billy Boy 36
Disappointed in stories being put on the air about individuals who are already doing very well without the additional exposure. There are more things going on in the U.S. that are more news worthy than what you are airing. First of all you could have come up with a better replacement for Anthony than an ex-jock who has a limited background in world events. You are bringing Tony and Gail down to a level unbecoming of their expertise. I do not know how many viewers you are loosing with this new format, but I for one am losing interest in your show as it is now presented!!

Could not find a search option 3/5
Looked for but could not find a search option
Too many commercials 1/5
I recently cut the cord. I’m accustomed to watching a couple of your programs via DVR so I could fast forward through the commercials. I haven’t yet figured out how to do that now that I’ve cut the cord. Meanwhile I can’t watch your programs because there’s so many commercials. Don’t you have a commercial free option?
New App 5/5
Just awful!!! Also, can’t email segments to share with others.
Border Crisis 1/5
Huge crisis at the southern border and no coverage whatsoever. Disgusting!
“Radio” Function Not Working 3/5
By Kyle Winchell
I typically like to listen to the news when driving to work, and lately the “Radio” option has not been working for me. The switch will act like it turns on and then goes right back off. Please fix this! 😁
Not even reporting 1/5
Look over here guys while we aren’t reporting on huge news developments.
Can’t watch videos? 2/5
When I try to watch any news video, it just shows me an ad with an X. So I click on the X and still never get to see any news story. So, is there a way to actually SEE the news stories, or does every story only send me to an ad video?
Fake news 1/5
0 is what this bias app needs
No more sharing! 1/5
This app doesn’t let you share episodes from 60 min! They need to bring that option back.
